Schedule for release of patches Dota 2 it has been arranged every 2 weeks. However, there are moments during the schedule patch out, there’s a tournament going on.
This seems to make Valve change the schedule update patch Dota 2 they. Later, if Valve usually releases a patch minor them on Thursday or Friday Indonesian time, then they will wait for the tournament to end first.
This even applies to major patch, not just a patch minor. It looks like Valve wants to avoid complaints from players regarding changes patch in the middle of a tournament which will certainly make it difficult for many people.
For upcoming Majors where the Thursday patch would land during the tournament, we will instead be releasing the patch at the end of the event.

As we know before, it started last February 2018, Dota 2 scheduled to always get updates patch every 2 weeks. Several tournaments have also been a little “disturbed” by this. Take, for example, the Starladder ImbaTV Invitational Season 5 (Minor), and the 2018 Dota 2 Asia Championships (Major).
Complaints from Players
Hard carry and captain of the team Fnatic , Jacky “EternaLEnVy“ Mao be the first player to file a complaint. He believes that there are players who already know the content patch then, when others don’t. Quinn “CCnC” Callahan, from OpTic Gaming also agrees with EnVy. He also believes that some people have access to information patch next.
What I dislike the most is that some teams clearly know whats coming in the patch and other teams don’t.

In addition, players, coaches, and those who are involved in other esports communities expressed their dislike for this schedule.
Team Secret trainer, Lee “SunBhie” Jeong-jae also had time to complain about this. Because many teams are used to training and preparing for a tournament, now it seems like they rely on intuition and luck.
So far, there has been no further notification from Valve regarding whether this shift decision only occurred during Road to The International 2018, or was it permanent.
